Low-price bids hit the entire manufacturing industry! How do cable companies respond?
Products are not only the foundation of an enterprise, but also the basis of economic activities. Only when every product has quality and every enterprise takes quality as its goal, can economic development be more quality.
"In the bidding process, the low price can win the bid, so that everyone is not as good as the quality, but only lower than the price." During the inspection of the product quality law enforcement by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress not long ago, some business owners complained that at present, some places are recruiting The phenomenon of "winning the bid at a low price" in bidding has become a prominent obstacle for enterprises to improve product quality, and needs to be addressed and regulated urgently.
Under normal circumstances, according to market rules, the bid price or the winning bid price in the bidding shall not be lower than the cost price. However, in reality, some bidding units ignore the quality requirements in the bidding process and focus on the price, resulting in the winning price lower than or even far lower than the cost price. In order to obtain profits, these companies that win bids at lower than cost prices can only compress costs in raw material procurement, production and manufacturing, and make up for losses at the expense of product quality, resulting in the phenomenon of "bad money drives out good money". In the law enforcement inspection, a cable company that has won the "Government Quality Award" bluntly stated that the production company has no profit margin and is forced to cut corners and break the bottom line. In fact, it is not uncommon for the product quality to fail due to winning the bid at a low price, or even to cause a safety accident.
The phenomenon of "winning the bid at a low price" has something to do with the lax enforcement of laws and regulations and the imperfect supervision mechanism. From the root cause, it is caused by the lack of a competitive environment that encourages the survival of the fittest.
When some companies spend a lot of profits every year to engage in research and development, innovation, and improve product quality, individual companies can compete on the same stage by cutting corners and counterfeiting, and even succeed in the competition. If things go on like this, no company is willing to spend energy on R&D and innovation. This not only seriously disrupted the market operation order, but also a blow to the entire manufacturing industry. Naturally, the solution is to further improve the market environment, let enterprises speak for product quality, and let good-quality products be heard loudly and stand firm, thus laying the foundation for product quality for manufacturing powerhouses.
The consolation is that in today's Chinese market, the space is increasingly cramped by cutting corners and even counterfeiting to make profits. On the one hand, at present, with the supervision of the whole process from pre-bid, in-bid to post-bid, the bidding activities are gradually standardized, and the possibility of seeking gray interests by winning the bid at a low price is greatly reduced.
On the contrary, some companies that won the bid at a low price often caused delays in delivery due to extremely low profits, and could not guarantee the quality, which made the tenderer pay a higher price. In the field of engineering, some people jokingly call this phenomenon "starvation to death of colleagues, exhaustion of oneself, death of the owner".
On the other hand, with the overall transformation of China's manufacturing industry, companies that are unwilling to invest in product quality will find it increasingly difficult to survive. We should follow and grasp this trend that is conducive to improving product quality, make existing laws and regulations more operable, maintain market rules of survival of the fittest, make law-abiding companies a green light all the way, illegal companies are blocked everywhere, and let companies take the initiative to take responsibility for their products, Responsible for consumers and society.
Quality is the foundation of an enterprise. my country's Product Quality Law also stipulates that enterprises should assume the main responsibility for product quality. In the final analysis, the improvement of product quality depends on the enterprise itself. Only when every product has quality and every enterprise aims at quality, can economic development be more quality. At present, the Chinese market is undergoing a consumption upgrade, and the industrial structure is quietly changing. High-end manufacturing, modern service industries and other fields will become hot spots for industrial investment. The competition in these fields will be more intense, and the requirements for quality and brand will be higher. Only by insisting on quality-oriented, and raising the quality issue to the level of values and modern corporate philosophy, can we come from behind and establish ourselves in the international competition. advantage in.
